You will learn the fundamentals of fundraising and development, best practices for support requests, and the responsibilities of good stewardship.

HOW TO LAUNCH YOUR ORGANIZATION
TO THE PUBLIC AND MEDIA

Many nonprofits are so busy getting to the business of running a nonprofit they often forget to officially launch it to the public and media. But, garnering attention and support early in the game can be the difference between struggling and thriving. A public launch can not only increase awareness around your nonprofit and its cause, but can help you to recruit clients, volunteers, financial supporters and collaborators. In this workshop you will follow a detailed plan on how to promote your organization to attract and engage the attention and support needed to run a successful nonprofit. (More information>>)

HOW TO CREATE AN EFFECTIVE WEBSITE
THAT PEOPLE WILL WANT TO VISIT

From the home page to the site map, your Web site must contain well written content that is engaging, informative and clear, navigation that is easy to use, and all the necessary tools to create a lasting relationship with your visitor. But for many nonprofits, their Web site is the last thing they look at and often the last place where they are willing to invest time, money and resources. In this hands-on workshop we will discuss the fundamentals of great Web site design and content. We will review all the key Web site elements a nonprofit must have. And we will also conduct a Web site audit on several nonprofit Web sites to determine when a Web site should be redesigned or simply refreshed for greater engagement. (More information>>)

HOW TO CREATE A SPECIAL EVENT
FOR FUNDRAISING AND AWARENESS

Ask any nonprofit that has hosted a successful special event to tell you their secret and the answer will always be “Good Planning!” That means, every minute detail must be considered. Every task must be completed on time. The right staff must be recruited and managed. And, the right people must be invited and be excited enough to attend. With expert instruction and the use of our own event planning template, this workshop will help you to define your special event’s goals, logistics, budget, timelines, and volunteer /staffing needs. You will learn how to create and attract financial and in-kind sponsorship opportunities.

HOW TO MARKET YOUR SPECIAL EVENTS
FOR MAXIMUM SUCCESS

The reasons for holding a special event are many. But, without the right kind of marketing and public relations they can often fall short on attendance, media interest and real results. Marketing your special event successfully is a result of an integrated approach to reach your target audiences. In this workshop you will learn how to create your event “story” to garner interest and participation while connecting with your target audience through electronic, internet, print and personal communications.

HOW TO DEFINE AND RECRUIT THE VOLUNTEERS
YOUR ORGANIZATION NEEDS

Most nonprofits depend on volunteers to support and run their programs, services and events. But, for volunteers to truly contribute to your organization’s success, they must be meeting their own needs and passions while serving your mission. How do you determine your volunteer needs? How do you find the right volunteers to meet those needs? And, how do you keep your volunteers engaged and committed to your organization when they have so many choices as to where to give their time? This workshop will help you to set organizational goals, assess your volunteer needs and design the right job descriptions to meet those needs. You will also learn integrated recruiting tactics utilizing your own communication tools, the media and supporters already invested in your organization. (More information>>)

HOW TO CREATE COMPELLING VIDEOS FOR
FUNDRAISING AND AWARENESS

Video provides one of the most compelling and effective marketing, fundraising and outreach tools available to nonprofits today. Why?

And, video can be shared across the globe reaching supporters that might otherwise never know you exist. In this workshop you will learn how to: determine your organization’s best video stories to tell; write a video script; define a creative look and feel; produce videos cost-effectively; and promote your videos to existing and potential supporters.
